Akari – short play demo video

Akari is a game that we’re currently thrilled to be developing here at Space Monster Games. It takes its lead from classic early 1990s shoot em ups such as Raiden and Outzone. Though the visual style is developing nicely we’re still hard at work creating some cool graphics and effects to keep you entertained for many, many levels.

More about the young hero of the game, Akari, and her backstory will follow in future posts. We hope you enjoy the video.

List of iPad shoot em ups

I have a small collection of shoot em ups on iPad. I have to say they’re all fantastic but a couple really stand out. Phoenix and Icarus-X in particular are a real thrill to play. Don Pachi is always excellent. Not all titles are specific to iPad but all play well on the larger screen.
I’d love it if ESP RaDe and Under Defeat made it to iPad some day.
Please help me add to my list. If you know of a cracking iOS shmup let me know.
